Realtors® Care Day brings out Realtor Volunteers®, Making Critical Home Repairs and Undertaking Community Projects in Iredell County

April 17, 2024

What:    Realtors® Care Day (RCD), an initiative of Canopy Housing Foundation, is an all-day home-repair project designed to help a diverse group of homeowners with critical, but often unaffordable, exterior home repairs and necessary adaptive and safety modifications in Mecklenburg, Iredell and Haywood Counties.

Like previous years, the RCD project will also include a community project in Iredell County, at the Children’s Home of Iredell County. The Children’s Home envisions a community where child abuse is not tolerated, and all children flourish in loving nurturing homes. The Children’s Home of Iredell County provides stability and housing for at-risk youth and children in traumatic situations, helping to provide and support a journey in overcoming barriers and achieving productive outcomes.

Who:    The 2024 event will include more than 350 Realtor® volunteers working on Fri., April 19 from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m., at 13 locations in Mecklenburg Counties, two locations/community projects in Iredell County, as well as projects in Haywood County, N.C.

MEDIA & PHOTO COVERAGE OPPORTUNITIES: Friday, April 19, (9:30 a.m.-noon)

Canopy Housing Foundation leaders, nonprofit partners, and Realtor® volunteers will be available for media interviews.
